Here are the first renderings we’ve made public showing Bloomberg’s headquarters for the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. With the official presidential candidate nominations just around the corner, we wanted to take a moment to let you know what to expect from Bloomberg.
First, we are creating a cutting-edge convention headquarters called the Bloomberg Link located near the arenas in Tampa and Charlotte. It will incorporate the modern architectural and design elements from the company’s signature global offices including everything from open floor plans and stocked pantries to virtual fish tanks.
In the Bloomberg Link we’ll convene CEOs, Members of Congress, Governors, government officials and entrepreneurs for interviews, panel discussions and policy briefings focused on the number one issue driving the U.S. elections: the economy. (Programming and credentialing details for events at the Bloomberg Link will be announced in the coming weeks. Events are invitation only. For event inquiries, email firstname.lastname@example.org.)
The second piece worth noting is that we are sending an unprecedented number of editors, reporters and analysts – doubling the number of editorial staff in Tampa and Charlotte vs. our 2008 staffing in Minneapolis and Denver. In total, more than 90 reporters, editors, producers and analysts will be onsite.
Bloomberg TV anchors will interview newsmakers and Charlie Rose will tape his show for PBS and our network at the Bloomberg Link.
Last, but certainly not least…we’ll have a convention daily called “Bloomberg Insider” where we’ll highlight the best news and analysis from Bloomberg News, Bloomberg Businessweek, Bloomberg BNA, Bloomberg Law, Bloomberg Government and Bloomberg View. (Distributed for free at both conventions, in D.C. and digitally on Bloomberg.com as well as Bloomberg Law, Bloomberg Government and the Bloomberg Professional service.)
So there you have it. Look out for some of Bloomberg’s best including Margaret Carlson, Peter Cook, Matthew Dowd, Julianna Goldman, Al Hunt, Mike Kinsley, Hans Nichols, Norman Pearlstine, Trish Regan, Josh Tyrangiel and more.
